Raise your hand if you, too, are looking forward to the two new 3DS StreetPass games that are being prepped for release

I know not everyone loves the handful of StreetPass games Nintendo has released for the 3DS so far, but I'm guessing most of those negative feelings are born out of the fact that not enough folks outside of Japan regularly have their 3DSes "on their person," as the saying goes, to make playing these digital titles worthwhile.

Thankfully, I live in a city that's packed with enough people that I nab at least three or four StreetPasses (if not more) every day while commuting to and from work.

As such, I'm pretty darn smitten with each and every one of the StreetPass games that currently are available--and I'm also pretty darn stoked to buy and play the two new ones that will be made available in North America on April 16.



The trailer above offers a peek at both of them--one of which will be known here as Battleground Z, while the other will be known as Ultimate Angler--along with something called "StreetPass Mii Plaza Premium," an app I know next to nothing about at the moment.

It appears that Ultimate Angler was developed by the able team at PROPE, previously responsible for Ivy the Kiwi! and a number of other wonderful games, and Battleground Z was made by Good-Feel, which most recently showed up in the credit roll for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

Will any of you be buying any of the above offerings on day one, or even at some point down the road? If so, let me know which ones in the comments section below and also let me know why you're planning to buy them.

There were a lot of great things in that Nintendo Direct that have me eager to throw my money at Nintendo over the next few months, but I may have freaked out and squealed a little over Ultimate Angler. I love fishing mini-games and StreetPass, so combining the two... no-brainer. I'll buy the zombie one as well. I won't be able to help myself. lol

Oh, yes, I'm also more interested in the fishing one, Terry. I'll get both, though, due to the bundle discount :)

It depends on how they incorporate the Streetpass function.
Streetpass is not a thing where I live and the Restaurant where the Nintendo Zone is is not for me any more. New Owners and lousy burgers that cost $30, salad that is slimy and it always smells of smoke. So if I'm not to go back and setup a relay I'll probably hold off....even if The angling game looks really good.

Ah, that's too bad. It really is too bad Nintendo didn't think globally while developing StreetPass...

I bought the other four Street Pass games, but I'm personally not interested in these two new ones. I'm just not into the idea of a fishing game or a zombie game.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with that, Will! Save that money for a game that's more appealing, I say :)

I'm SO EXCITED to hear it! FISHING! AHHH!!

thegaygamer.com said...

Yes, that's the one I'm most excited about, too, Justin. April 16 can't come too quickly!

apricotsushi said...

YEAHH!! Some folks were laughing at me for being more interested in fishing than zombies. Team fishing!

thegaygamer.com said...

Oh, no, I'm on Team Fishing all the way, Anne, although the zombie game looks decently fun, too :)

Justin Difazzio said...

TEAM FISHING!
